My boss has a big chart on the wall in his office. People are supposed to guess the date & time that the baby will show up, and there's a separate guess for if it's a girl or a boy. Everyone is guessing boy, which is no surprise since I'm tall & carry low. They all guessed boy last time too, and DD is most definitely a girl LOL! The date range is only plus/minus one week from my due date, so I wrote in the margins that my guess was for V-day at 8am. I'm not happy with all of the people that are choosing dates AFTER my due date....grrrr!

Anyone else's work doing a pool to guess when the baby will be born?

They've got one going for me. Not many people signed up for dates after my due date. I hope that's a sign! My due date is tomorrow.

Ha ha Kristi - at my appt on Tuesday, my doctor said "Thursday would be a good day" for me too. His on-call night is usually Tuesdays, but he had switched to Thursday this week so one of the other doctors could go out of town for the weekend. LOL, I would be SO HAPPY if I had this baby tomorrow! I'm sure I'll still be pregnant weeks from now, though.

So far about 1/3 of the guesses in the pool are after my due date. Jerks.

We had one with family. SIL won for me and she was still 2 weeks after he was born. FIL got right on for Tasha.

I did an informal one on facebook recently. About half were guessing AFTER my due date, I was not happy about that! But apparently, they're going to have a better chance at being right!

My work did an online baby pool for my second child. It was a lot of fun and the winner has ultimate bragging rights. They found a site called Until It Happens to host the baby pool and my sister won the pool.
